Associate Professor

Dr. Hanley graduated from UVA School of Medicine in 2006 and returned to UVA in 2012 after completing his diagnostic radiology residency and fellowship training. He has served as the Section Head of Thoracic Imaging, Modality Director of CT, Co-Director of Body Procedures, and Residency Program Director. Dr. Hanley is currently the Vice Chair of Educational Operations, supporting the department’s residencies, fellowships and medical students. He is actively practicing with clinical interests that include lung cancer screenings, thoracic procedures and cardiovascular disease.

He has also been actively involved in the development of web-based education with benefits reaching far beyond Charlottesville. In addition, Dr. Hanley has developed an educational website for patients and healthcare providers to learn more about radiation exposure, including an online tool patients can use to estimate their cancer risk from medical imaging. This experience along with UVA’s cutting edge imaging equipment has enabled the radiology department to deliver the highest quality exams at the lowest radiation dose possible.

Dr. Hanley serves as the medical director of UVA's comprehensive lung cancer screening program. He has been awarded a grant from the Tobacco Indemnification Commission (TIC), which will help provide lung cancer screening services to underserved communities in Southside and Southwest Virginia, where the smoking rates are some of the highest in the state.
